Are you currently using Autoinstall in your 2.1.2 TOR? I have a very simple
autoinstall program that uses a KSDS to associate VTAM id's with fixed
terminal id's. The majority of our users do not need a specific CICS
terminal id, but there were a few applications that did. We implemented our
program to look for the VTAM ID in our file, if it's found we assign the
fixed termid, if it's not, we generate an id. I can send you the source if
you'd like. As to the second part of your question, you do not need to
define the TCT entries in the AOR. Use the Shippable attribute in the TOR
and all is handled. You may need an XICTENF exit if you do START based on
termid in the AOR...this exit will route the request back to the TOR in the
case of a terminal not found condition. I can supply a simple version of
that code as well.

Let me see it I can explain our problem properly. We're at CICS 2.1 heading
4.1 and have questions on exactly how to handle the TCT. A number of our
rely on checking a fixed terminal id assigned to a particular user and until
we can actually
change the program this must remain.
We use VTAM/SWITCH for initial mainframe access and when necessary assigned
terminal address to a user. This logical address is associated with a CICS
terminal id in
the current 2.1 TCT.
With the new setup we would like to have a 4.1 TOR addressing either a 2.1
AOR or a
4.1 AOR depending on where the transaction resides. A user will get into
the 4.1 TOR,
initiate a transaction that will either run in the 2.1 or 4.1 AOR.
Eventually all transactions
will be in the 4.1 but believe it or not we still have a number of macro
around. (Is it true that CICS 2.1 will not work after this year? Our
seems to think it will run forever.)
Our problem is the TCT. Where should it reside? If it must be in the 4.1
TOR will the
terminal id be passed to the AOR's?
Can anyone give any hints as to the proper TCT setup for these regions.
Thanks in advance for your help.
